I have an issue with mail that popped up about 2 months ago.

It will not allow me to add attachments of any sort when composing a new mail.

By not allowing, I mean it goes through the motions of selecting the file etc but never puts the attachment in the mail body.

If I send the mail anyway, no attachment seen by receiver.

I have deleted the file, no change.

I have tried windows friendly off/on, no change.

I have tried on another account on the same machine, same problem.

I have mail 6.2 ( 1499 ) and OS X 10.8.2, iMac Intel


Plenty of free disk and memory.


Any ideas?



OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
